Fairfield County Giving Day!
Our Goal: Raise $1 Million for hundreds of nonprofits in 24 hours!
Fairfield County Giving Day is an initiative to increase philanthropy in Fairfield County through a targeted, 24-hour period of online giving.
Presented by the Fairfield County Community Foundation and funding partner Bank of America, Fairfield County Giving Day will take place on Friday, March 7.
How Does Giving Day Work?
Through a fast, easy and secure online donation website, you will be able to search for local nonprofits and make donations to support their work.
What's more, with your gift - whether $10.00 or $100.00 - you will be helping these nonprofits compete for prizes and matching funds.
Our current prize pool is $100,000 and growing and top awards include $25,000 for the most number of donations received, $1,000 dollar-for-dollar match for the first nonprofits to raise $1,000, and more.
Along with the prizes and matching pool of funds, Fairfield County Giving Day will be a significant publicity and awareness event raising the profile our nonprofit sector.
